the unforgettable memo-

As we are about to venture into the future, a future which holds so much for us all,
we shall always look back to you, Faulkner, with pride and fondest recollections of the

MRS. PAULINE MARTIN
To you, Mrs. Martin, we the class of 1959 dedicate our yearbook, The Faulkan.
There is so much we could say but somehow words seem trite when it comes to
expressing our gratitude for all you have done for us in the past three years. The
examples you have set, the understanding, patience and wisdom you have given,
the way you have stood by us all during our three years of training, and the friend
you have been to each and every one of us. We can think of no other way to ex-
press our appreciation than to dedicate this book in remembrance of the past three
years as a small token of our thanks.
Many long days and hours were spent, by the
members of the faculty, in molding us into
nurses who will faithfully uphold the profession
with pride and dignity. We recognize this is
not a simple task and so with great humility we
say thank you to those who made our dreams a

TO OUR PARENTS
Dear Mom and Dad,
As we stand here on the threshold of graduation we cannot venture forward through
this open door until we have stopped and shared perhaps the happiest moment of our
lives with you. Who else is more deserving, who else is so totally capable of knowing
just how we feel but our very own mom and dad. Will you ever forget our first night
of relief, or our first night of nights; you worked them too. You have always been with
us in all the firsts we've experienced. There was the patient in 106, you knew him as
well as I.
When things were toughest and we could see no way through we could always find
the way home. Home, where you always helped us find the way back to what only
parents have the wisdom to see beyond the tiny hill which seemed like a mountain to
us. There is no unity or bond that ties a girl so close to her family as that of training.
Yet this bond is much deeper than love alone. It seems to constitute a unique under-
standing, a deep respect for each others needs, an ever mounting faith and devotion
for that which God alone does rule.
Even as mature young women, about to venture out into this world of opportunity,
we shall always remember your words of wisdom and experience - "You will never know
as much as you know today, my child," and in our hearts we will ever harbor over-
powering love and devotion for the two in our lives who have made our education that
much more important.
In tribute from,
Your Loving Daughter.

May we always be grateful to our teachers, families, and friends, who have given us so much en-
couragement and guidance during our years of nurses' training. Let us also be grateful that we live in
such a wonderful age of progress and opportunity. Even though it may not be our ambition to reach the
moon, may we ever aspire to the higher things of life. "Somewhere under the stars is work which you
alone were meant to do. Never rest until you have found it. "

"You've a manner all so mellow. . . "
First in our class to be president and bride, Bal has led the
way for the class of '59. "What will I do with my hair, " is a
familiar phrase. Eating is her favorite hobby but she never
gains a pound. Worcester State is still wondering about that
Her dry wit and casual manner will remain with us for
many years to come.

MARY ELIZABETH BLANCHARD
125 Kent Street
May 23, 1938
"So filled with wildest glee, yet so serene. "
Pixie of the class - that's our Mare. If anyone needs a
lesson in how to fix flat tires Mary is the one to see. A
perfect hostess in every way. Which is it, Mare, a boat or a
She will most be remembered for her mischievous eyes
and understanding ways.
JOAN PRISCILLA BOURGAULT
5 Glendale Terrace
Jamaica Plain, Mass.
"The mind is not the heart. "
Silence is oftimes golden, is our description of Joanie.
Only one so petite could live in room 64. "I'm smiling now, "
is what we hear most often.
With a heart so full of gold and a friendliness so true surely
only the good can be awaiting Joanie.
BERYL ANN BROWN
50 Carley Street
June 21, 1938
"I laughed inside, and only cranked the faster. "
Big Bopper the second. Where would Beryl be if radios hadn't
been invented. "Shall we dance?" - To the "King and I, " of
course. Happy go lucky Beryl can be found in the kitchen or
asleep in bed. Remember study hours and those numerous
alarm clocks! A joke with every coke, a lover of nature,
possessor of the wanderlust.
Such a light heart has made Berl an essential part of the
class of '59. "No Other Love"
KATHERINE RHODA CHADWELL
96 Stetson Avenue
February 21, 1938
"With innocence of song and childish chat. "
From long to short hair hasn't changed Kay a bit to us.
Through the ups and downs she has always managed to keep her
head above sea level. A true conversationalist, an ardent TV
fan. Always ready for fun, that's our Kay.
A truly fine-mixer with a contagious laugh will more than
aid Kay in all her future endeavors.

JANICE MURIEL COTILLO

Portsmouth, New Hampshire
"I will omit no opportunity. "
Sugar and spice, everything nice, is our little queen, from
New Hampshire. "Hi, kids, what are you doing?' It's hard to
believe so much energy and spirit could be in one sole in-
dividual. New Hampshire has much to gain from this little one.
Our hearts go out to such a warm and genuine girl.

May 27, 1939
"She must ever be advancing some new prank, and laughing
and dancing. "
"Bless you all, " will ring through the corridors of Chapin
House for years to come. How could we ever have passed our
finals without your "blessing. " "Down among the redmen,

PRINCESS VICTORIA FLEAGAL EVERTON
R. D. 1
"Forbids all mockery, though quaint she is. "
Pat brings royalty to our class from Pennsylvania. So little,
yet with so very much to offer. Her Pennsylvania accent and
precise manner leaves us with much to be awed.. Almost a
constant tap can be heard from Prin's room as she types away
for the man in her life. Another June bride.
So loyal a friend, so righteous in living.
22 Channing Street
June 24, 1936
"But time passed by in a strange disguise. "
A transfer from Quincy. Bill dominates most of her spare
time. Wedding bells in June. Weekends at Halifax, Oh those
sparkling green eyes and a laugh so hearty.
An addition to our class who will long be remembered.
"Moments to Remember"
ELAINE FRANCES HARHEN
100 Whiting Street
May 5, 1938
"So hot of heart and wild of spirit. "
A tan at any time of the year, that's our Harry. Beautiful,
beautiful brown eyes. How's progress, Elaine? A trip to Europe
a year to the day after graduation. Always ready for a good
time - in rain or shine.
Her sparkling personality will retain many fond memories
in years to come.

"You sing a song of rare delight. . . "
Energy at its utmost; our " Gypsy Rose Lee. " Rain or shine

October 28, 1938
"Mixed from a bowl of sky blue dreams and sea green facts. .
True or false it's hard to say what mischief lies behind
those sparkling eyes. Petite Pat in her reserved manner has
supplied us with many a laugh. "Tennis, anyone?"
A perfect lady in every way.
"Why Was IBorn?"
JACQUELYN MAY KEPPLER
334 Granville Street
August 21, 1936
"O noble, true and sure and lovable. . . "
A gift from the African missions is what we await from
Kep. Bill plays an important part in Jackie's life and a more
perfect couple you'll never find. Jackie can always be found
somewhere between E. T.S. and Faulkner.
A mature young woman with high ideals makes Jack one of
the most understanding and patient members of our class.
BARBARA ANN LEACH
April 16, 1938
"As a rosebud myth, in dreaminess. . . "
Falmouth at 5 A.M. after the senior prom - what a ride!
How about a surprise shower for your cousin. Barbie?
A kind way about her, and patient too. How long was it
you had to wait before you got to see Danny in Tennessee -
that was another good ride.
Wedding chimes after graduation will be the beginning of
a long happy life for Barbie and Danny.
"Until The 12th Of Never"
JOAN MARIE LESSARD
5 Hillside Street
October 18, 1938
"Love is a smoke raised with the fumes of sighs. "
"You'll never guess, you'll just never guess, " echoes the
corridors in joyful squeals. Kettledrums, the pops, Yogie
bear, and onion rings all wrapped up into one vivacious blonde
could characterize no other "I want my Maypo. "
Her versatility and overpowering personality make her a
must in any society.
"I've Grown Accustomed to His Face"
8 Plympton Street
September 20, 1928
"Gifted, loved and praised. . . "
One of our best loved seniors, "Glo" is a transfer student
whose real love of people and nursing has made her an asset
to the class.
Never an unkind word or thought from Gloria. Her motto
seems to be "if you can't say something good about someone
don't say anything, "
DOROTHY EVELYN LORD
Little Compton, R. I.
August 6, 1936
"Fair girl, fond wife and dear young mother. . . "
One union split into three states. A transfer in her senior
year to make our class complete. Daily letters and week-
end trips have made long days shorter.
Dot's poise and maturity has yet to be surpassed. Her
courage to attain her goal has set an example for us all.
"Third Man Theme"
SANDRA DENISE MANN
121 Traffrail Road
September 22, 1938
"A something quiet and subdued. . . "
Sandy, have you had any blind dates lately? Neatness
personified - "top drawer, left hand side, in the corner." On
a constant campaign to gain weight our gal is bound to lose.
A few words with much wisdom comes from Sandy. Her
quiet ways leave us with much to admire.
THERESA ANN McQUADE
496 Washington Street
January 10, 1939
"Enjoy the honey-heavy dew of slumber. . . "
Not a care in the world, happy from day to day. Terry is

That beautiful new car may take her many miles away
but her laughter will remain with us through the years.
"To Know Him Is To Love Him"
FREDERIC A ELAINE MILLER
44 Westview Terrace
West wood, Mass.
"With the most noble blood of all this world. . . "
"Which Miller are you.F. , S. , or J. ? Once distinguished,
never forgotten. Did you ever get to see that little house in
back of Silkie's? Complexion of moonglow, a bundle of gleam,
best describes the memories of our Freddie we will carry
through the years to come.
JOAN FRANCES MILLER
599 River Street
March 24, 1938
"Sweet little face, so full of slumber. . . "
Good things come in small packages is a familiar phrase
but oh, so true when it comes to describing Joanie. "I just
have to have my sleep," is what we often hear. From '56 to
'59 our Joan has remained the same. Her impish expression has
us all wondering what she'll do next.
Joan's sincerity and understanding ways will go down in the
history of our minds as a true example of young womanhood.
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
SHIRLEY LORRAINE MILLER ROBERTS
32 Charming Street
June 25, 1937
"There is a singer everyone has heard. "
Where there's a guitar there's Shirl. Many's the night our
gal has spent entertaining us with her hillbilly roll. If not at
work then she can be found with Ken. Another May bride we
add to the list. .Earth doesn't provide enough good forShirl to do.
With such fortitude and strength and the will to strive forward
she cannot help but come out on top.
JUDITH SUZAN MITCHELL
166 Clifton Avenue
January 17, 1938
"Laughing eyes of limped blue. . . like glad waters running over. '
"Don't tell anyone, - But!, " are the words most heard. Tall
tales run freely with Mitch around. Now tell us, Judy, what
really happened to the turtle? Mechanics like a puppet on a
suing. Most often seen and heard rumbling in her Volks.
A personality no one can claim but Mitch makes her loved

'214 Billings Street
North Quincy, Mass.
February 12, 1937
"Constant as the northern star. . . "
"Seriously though, " is the byword and "actually, " follows
as a close second. Pratt has been an active member in our class
and student government for the past three years. What about
those "platonic relationships?" "Anyone for coffee, " is the
One of the many "mothers" in our class Caroline is always
ready with a sympathetic ear.
JEAN TELFORD RILEY
7 Lombard Street
April 11, 1938
"A song of long ago. . . "
Miss County Cork of Faulkner Hospital. Rile can be found
most usually looking for daisies - in gardens, on hats - wher-
ever they're found. "This is Miss Riley calling. " Jean's main
ambition is to work days. Had any conjunctivitis lately?
With her Irish eyes and roguish smile, Jean's love tor people
will take her far.
"Drifting and Dreaming"
NANCY MAE ROBAR
501 W. Washington Street
June 6, 1935
"So brave she was, and good, in worth of womanhood. "
No other feet could fill her shoes. As cute as a button, a
way all her own best describes our senior class president. "He
bought me a present, " can often be heard. A willing worker,
a steadfast friend has made Nancy a most loved member of
our class. A career man, Nance?
JUDITH ANNE SLACK
August 29, 1938
"One level higher than the earth below. "
What a lucky girl. How many of us get a dozen roses, rec-
ords by the ton, and a diamond, all from the same handsome
fellow. Martha's Vineyard - is her home. How's that ferry
running, Jud? Wedding bells will be ringing soon after grad-
uation and we wish Judy and Ken every happiness.
"Now and for Always"
94 Vine Street
July 14, 1938
"A peaceful life just toil and rest."
With a twinkle in her eyes and a song on her lips, Snyde

Never a dull moment with Pat around. Her conversational
ability has no takers in competition. Samba, Tango, or

she will have no trouble in the years to come.

JANICE EMERSON TOHER
36 Blake Street
March 8, 1938
"To attain the highest good. . . "
"Hi, there" is a familiar phrase from Jan on her way in or
out. Toher seems to be always on the go. "The meeting will
now come to order" As president of Student Association she
Jan's poise and graciousness will carry her far on the ladder
On September 5, 1956, almost three years to date
Forty youngsters entered Chapin to learn their fate.
There were tall ones, short ones, skinny ones and plump ones
Page boys, feather cuts, pixies and buns.
Each however looked the same in the face,
With eyes which asked, "Is this to be my base? "
Big sisters smiled in a knowing way,
For only they knew the price that we must pay.
Then all of a sudden it seemed all were gone.
Alone each felt; Moms and Dads had drifted along.
To our rooms we were shown with enough luggage to
choke a horse,
Of which clothes, stuffed animals, and fodti
were the source.
Unpacked we did in a hesitant way, asking ourselves
how we ever got here
For in all our plans for our chosen career we forgot to
include Mom and Dad wouldn't be near.
To supper we traveled like a herd of starved cattle
Engaging in what is known as girl's idle prattle.
A talent show was our next new endeavor.
We found that our class was really quite clever.
Duckwalking, bedstripping, bowing to upperclassmen
Was all a part of initiation from them.
Our first night at Chapin we'll never forget,
Not a one of us slept; This you can bet.
Next morning at 6:30 we all did arise,
Our career had begun is what we surmised.
The classroom awaited with books to be read
"All those in six months?, " is what we then said.
"All those and then some, " came the voice of our leader,
Mrs. Martin of course, this is how we did meet her.
Introductions to courses, for now we must work
We had a job that we just couldn't shirk.
For the next six months oh how we did study
For hours at night, alone in a group or with a buddy.
Then came finals just before capping
Not much time could be found for napping.
How we would pass them we weren't quite sure.
It seemed to be more then we could endure.
But passed them we did and to our surprise
Up the aisle of capping we did rise.
With blessings from our parents and friends
We received our caps to tie up loose ends.
Two weeks vacation was upon us at last.
As soon as it started it seemed it had passed.
Back to classes and work we did march,
With bibs and caps which were really quite starched.
The next six months was spent mostly on days.
With relief and nights next to come our way.
The D. K. , O. R. and Obs were the following stops
With affiliations in sight to be our future hops.
From a plain white cap to two wing bands we flew
In the fall of 57 with thirty two as our crew.
To C. H. and Worchester with a trunk load of ownings
From many were heard anxiety moanings.
Peter Bent Brigham for only six weeks
Gave us the chance to do nursing at its peak.
With two and a half years stacked up behind us
There were six months left to fly by like dust.
Senior classes began, six weeks to a section
And along with all this came senior election.
Vacations began and weddings of classmates
While others began their setting of dates.
A shower was given for those being married
All of us there and oh how we tarried.
The summer flew by with only weeks 'til graduation
That day we'll remember 'til the end of creation.
Our mission accomplished, our goal now attained,
The memories of training, our standards maintained.
The joys and hardships we've gone through together
Will be with us always 'til the day before never.
So to Faulkner we hail for three years of living
Where we learned in this world there's more joy in giving.

Miss Sylvia Cropper
Director of Nurses
Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
In response to your fecent request to locate the various members of the class of 1959
for our ten year progress report I decided to take a trip around the world in thirty-one
days. I never dreamed I'd be able to locate so many in such a short space of time.
The variety of occupations was astounding! Starting out from Hawaii on a Friday morn-
ing for Alaska, I found Joan Lessard as a stewardess, on the very plane I was boarding.
She looked terrific with the navy blue uniform and beautiful California tan. Upon ar-
rival in Alaska I was greeted by Carol Snyder who is doing pediatrics for the ice-bound
Eskimos. We had a dinner of blubber and polar bear meat. Think I'll stick to steak,
thank you. From Alaska I proceeded down to San Francisco where I found Kay Chad-
well, R.N. , B.S. , M.D. , head of the Golden Gate Anesthesia Department. Kay is lov-
ing every minute of it. From California I went to New Mexico by train, and much to
my surprise I ran into Gloria Litchford who is now teaching Nursing Arts to the young
Mexicans, Traveling up the map a bit 1 stopped over in Arizona to see Judy Mitchell
who is now a school nurse in a bustling ranch community. Judy has to improvise quite
a bit but after our home nursing course it is quite easy, she says. In Louisiana I found
Caroline Pratt doing psychiatric nursing in Louisiana State Sanitorium. She is planning
to enter some of her patients in the Mardi Gras festivities this year to show the progress
being made. Down in Panama I came across Dottie Lord and Nancy Robar with their
husbands basking in the sun and giving L. P. N. 's course in English. Down Cuba way I
found Jody Hadley as private scrub nurse for Fidel Castro. On a stop over in Bermuda I
had dinner with Sandi Hutchings, R.N. , who is now head of all public health on the
island. It's a big assignment but Hutch is doing a great job. From the sunny shores of fan-
tastic Bermuda I boarded an ocean liner for Europe. Much to my amusement I found
Elaine Harhen on her way to Paris for her long awaited vacation. We had a great chance
to reminisce. We arrived in England just a few hours later. These jet propelled liners
are fabulous for people who want to take a long trip in a short period of time. England
led us to Betty Ballas Daleys' house. Betty is head of the welfare department of the
Commonwealth of England. Up in Ireland I saw those two smiling eyes of Jean Riley,
who is now a missionary nurse, Jean loves the work and the people all love Jean. While
passing through Sweden I found Judy Slack, Night Supervisor in the Kings' Hospital.
Coming down to Germany, I looked up Joanie Miller, who is running a medical aid
station for refugees. Stopping in on Pat Fleagal in Holland was perhaps the most amusing
stop of all. Pat's latest endeavor is teaching the Dutch nurses how to tip-toe around the
wards in their wooden shoes. Freddy Miller turned up in Sweden running a first aid
station in the Alps. Freddy claims business is boomingl I decided to jaunt down to
Monaco and guess who I found -- Terry McQuade as governess to Princess Grace's child-
ren by day and gambler by night. I guess you might say I splurged a little, but not in
vain, by taking a cruise up the Mediterranean. I found Jan Toher now head nurse of
research for the Esso Standard Oil Company. Of course, Silkie, I realize this letter
should be and probably will be published somewhere, however, please exclude the next
bit of information. Pat Kelleher is reported to be working behind the iron curtain. She
is working for the U.S. Government on some secret mission, to do with W.H.O. Sandi
Mann is working in China now with her husband, who is now a five star general for Uncle
Sam. I visited Australia and found Jackie Keppler with her husband doing missionary
work together. They plan to return to the states in 1985. Shirley Miller is doing con-
stant care down in the Fiji Islands. The constant care is her family of seven. Guess
that's enough to keep anyone constantly busy. I arrived back on the east coast only
ten days ago. On stepping off the plane I decided to look up Beryl Brown who is head
nurse on ward 28 at Childrens Hospital. Traveling back over the U.S.I stopped to see
Jan Cotillo, now head of the A. N. A. and Mary Blanchard, Director of Nurses at New
York University. Pat Sullivan was out delivering a baby when I reached Kentucky.
Her secretary told me business had been flourishing this year. Barbie Leach is doing
frontier nursing in Tennessee with her husband and four children. Last but far from
least while waiting for my plane to take me back home I ran across Joanie Bourgault
who is now editor of the A.J.N, and making headlines with all her stimulating edito-
Well, Silkie, I guess you might say mission accomplished, and all are well, making
the headlines. I am signing off now, this Hawaiian sun is just scorching today. See you
next May at the reunion.

FAULKNER HOSPITAL PLEDGE AND CREED
Reverently do I pledge myself to the wholehearted service of
those whose care is entrusted to this hospital. To that end I will strive
in the fulfillment of my duties holding secret whatsoever I may learn
touching upon the lives of the sick. I acknowledge the dignity of the
cure of disease and the safe-guarding of health in which no act is
menial or inglorious. I will walk in upright faithfulness and obe-
dience to those under whose guidance I am to work, and I pray for
patience, kindness and understanding in the holy ministry of broken

next year kids. A truly active class. The first to at-
tempt a dance in the Rec room. It's hard to find them
all together at the same time. Affiliations, kids? Oh,
your stories bring back old memories. We'll see you all
CLASS OF 1961
There must be a beginning to all
worthwhile things. If you only knew
how much you remind us of ourselves
only three years ago. A quiet class
when you first encounter them but give
two or three minutes and then watch
out. The first to use Faulkner Barn
and rumor has it quite successfully at
that, right, kids? Socially inclined,
that's our probies.
The next two years will pass right
by without you hardly realizing it.
Always remember where there is a will,
there is a way.

WHAT IS A STUDENT NURSE?
Student nurses are found everywhere, underneath, on top of, run-
ning around, jumping over, or slithering past patient's beds. Doctors
yell at them, head nurses criticize them, interns tolerate them, resi-
dents overlook them, and patients love them.
A student nurse is courage under a cap, a smile in snowy white,
strength in a starched skirt, energy that is endless, the best of young
womanhood, a modern Florence Nightingale. Just when she is gain-
ing prestige and poise, she drops a glass, breaks a syringe or steps on a
A student nurse is like a composite, she eats like a team of hun-
gry interns and works like the whole nursing staff put together. She
has the speed of a gazelle, the strength of an ox, the quickness of a
cat, the endurance of a flagpole sitter, and the abilities of Florence
Nightingale, Linda Richards, and Clara Barton rolled into one blue
To the head nurse she has the stability of mush, the fleetness of
a snail, the mentality of a mule and is held together by starch, ad-
hesive tape and strained nerves. To an alumnae, she never will work
hard, carry more trays, make more beds, or scrub on more operations
than her predecessors.
A student nurse likes days off, boys her own age, the O.R. , af-
filiations, certain doctors, pretty clothes, her roommate, mom and
dad. She is not much on working 3:30-12, days off with classes, alarm
clocks, getting up for roll call, or eating corned beef every Tuesday.
No one else looks forward so much to days off or so little to
working 3:30-12 on week ends. No one else can get so much pleasure
from straightening a wrinkled sheet, or wetting a pair of parched lips.
No one else can cram into one little head the course of a disease,
the bones composing the pelvis, what to do when a patient goes into
shock, how to insert a Cantor tube (usually at 3 a.m.) plus the ten top
tunes of the hit parade.
A student nurse is a wonderful creature, you can criticize her, but
you can't discourage her. You can hurt her feelings but you can't
make her quit. Might as well admit it, whether you are a head nurse,
doctor, alumnae, or a patient, she is your personal representative of
the hospital, your living symbol of faith and loving care.
We live here
Working for our caps was perhaps the hardest task we
had ever endeavored. Hours of lecture, labs with the cats,
frogs and petri dishes, quizzes, exams, study hours and last
but far from least were finals and that midnight oil ! ! I
"What a riot"
"Try channel 7
"Am I red yet?"
The rec room versus the roof, where shall we go first? Many a "Florida"
tan was acquired on the roof, and many a record session enjoyed in the rec
room. Ping-pong, TV, cokes, peanut butter and crackers all part of our
leisure hours. "Anyone want a Sundae?" Walks to Brighams . . .rain or shine.
Santa's annual kept us all guessing who was under
the pillows and snowy white beard. Big sisters, little
sisters, gifts galore, tops in fashion, tokens of jest
for the faculty, kiss for Santa refreshments, singing,
and holiday spirit all tend to make this a night to
"Tell Santa what you want, Ruthie?'
"A job well done, Santa O'Hara"
Flag of truce
One of many rides
"No one asked if you wanted one"
Seven heads are better than one
Was it really funny?
B.U. or Faulkner?
A little extra help
That Pepsodent smile
The casual hours spent to-

ed by all. A keen sense of
humor, good sportsmanship,
and the ability to laugh when
it was your turn to hit the
showers was a must in our

"Oh well, I was going to take one anyway.

Coffee served anytime
Between 10 and 10:30 after study
hours, head for the kitchen, pile
into the nearest room where there
was homemade "goodies. " Never
could find an empty shower or tub

Dance lessons for no
The senior year, full of reunions from affiliations, relief shift, night duty, the prom, picnics,
graduation, and fond farewells to those who have made our three years at Faulkner possible.
Mistletoe Ball, the Student Government
Christmas dance. A festive night for all
concerned. Every one dressed in their finest,
a far cry from the blues and whites. Sup-
ported by alumnae, faculty, and the doctors
and staff. A Merry time was had by all.
A short intermission
"La Bella Notta," or beautiful night as it was
so perfectly named. Ask anyone who attended
just how beautiful it was. To add to the radiance
of the evening our own Jan Cotillo reigned as
queen and a more appropriate and deserving
queen has yet to be crowned. Dancing to the
music of Marchard and his orchestra in the State
suite of the Sheraton Plaza provided a most
memorable evening for us all. Following the
prom found many departing for destinations such
as Steubens, Marshfield, Bilaricka, and old Cape
